I know the way I’m supposed to work. I’ve read the US Army Corp of Engineers manual on ergonomics. Ninety degree angles, good light, good back support. I set up my office chair in the kitchen with my feet up. My shoulder hurts. I can’t focus. I just need to read. One hour passes. Nothing. I’m trying to follow the manual. I stand up and move to the sofa in the dark living room…crumple myself into a ball in the dark. My shoulder stops hurting. I can turn the pages.
